Every year on November 15th communities across the state gather to observe Texas Recycles Day. Every day, small communities across the Panhandle work hard to recycle and divert waste from area landfills. In the fiscal year 2018, the communities across the region recycled more than 3.77 million pounds of material like cardboard, newspapers, office paper, plastics, tires, electronics, scrap metal, scrap tires, concrete and used motor oil.

The current national recycling rate is at 34 percent. Texas Recycles Day aims to raise public awareness of the economic and environmental benefits of recycling. Recycling not only conserves natural resources and saves energy, but also reduces the amount of landfill space used each year, which saves residents money by avoiding the need for new, very expensive landfills.
